PROVO, Utah, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Vivint, the largest home automation services company in North America, continues to support those serving in the military by recognizing Armed Forces Day, Saturday, May 18th. Vivint is proud to help safeguard the families of military members protecting the United States both at home and abroad.


Vivint helps deployed service men and women stay connected to their families through its suite of home automation and security products. No matter where they are stationed, members of the military can remotely access their Vivint system from any Web-enabled device, allowing them to check door locks, receive customized alerts and view real-time video from the security cameras at any time.  

Vivint home automation customer Tyson Barker of Oak Grove, Ky., appreciates the system when he is away from his family. The video surveillance feature allows him to check in on both his home and those he loves.

"The item that really sold me was the wireless monitoring and the ability to control the entire system from my phone," Barker said. "I can lock and unlock my doors, watch a live video feed and set and monitor the alarm status all from my phone or laptop. It has given me a peace of mind I didn't have before."

Vivint also provides assistance to spouses on the home front. Tereka Chance of San Antonio, Texas, relies heavily on her Vivint home automation system while her husband is deployed in Iraq. She faces a multitude of challenges, including trying to complete her training in pharmacy school while raising a son with autism while her husband is overseas. "I have had several alarms before, but this is by far the best system and best experience I have ever had," Chance said.

"We salute the sacrifices and contributions of military families on Armed Forces Day," said Steve Dixon, vice president of customer experience and operations at Vivint. "Every day, United States servicemen and women put their lives on the line for the country they love, and Vivint is proud to play a role in helping them stay connected to their families and homes."

With a one-time activation fee, plus a monthly monitoring charge, Vivint's home automation system provides simple, affordable home and security management. The Vivint solution also can manage thermostats, lighting features, and small appliances. Customers can add or subtract products to create a unique solution that meets the needs of their homes, families, and lives.
